Midway CPO Shirt Jacket in Olive Wool
Introducing the Midway Wool CPO. This shirt is inspired by the M42 HBT uniform, one of the most commonly issued uniforms for American soldiers in World War II. The boxy fit and oversized pockets were practical necessities of a functional wartime garment. Viewed through a civilian lens, these design elements lend themselves to a distinctive
and stylish garment.
The original M42 HBT uniform was named partly after the fabric they were made from, cotton herringbone twill. We decided to take it in a more refined direction and opted for a warmer and softer fabric. The Midway CPO features a yarn dyed melton wool blend that was made in Japan. The fabric is comfortable and soft to the touch, but sturdy enough to feel at home on a military inspired piece.
It is unlined for added versatility, and can be worn either as an outer layer or as a mid-layer under heavier outerwear. For the finishing touch, we had buttons custom made in Italy using genuine horn. The Midway CPO is offered in Red, Charcoal,
Navy, and Olive.
